Dears, the follow is a part of an article in PCWorld magazine, Dec 2008 page 96. I can not understand the meaning of pink colored parts. Can you tell me what that means?

"Though Google seems to have covered everything, many observers believe that logically it will next attempt to attack one very big part of the software market: the operating system.
The Chrome browser is the first toe Google has dipped into these waters. While a browser is how users interact with most of Google’s products, making the underlying operating system somewhat irrelevant, Chrome nevertheless needs an OS to operate.

To make Microsoft irrelevant, though, Google would have to work its way through a minefield of device drivers, and even then the result wouldn’t be a good solution for people who have specialized application needs, particularly most business users. But a simple Google OS—perhaps one that’s basically a customized Linux distribution—combined with cheap hardware could be something that changes the PC landscape in ways that smaller players who have toyed with open-source OSs so far haven’t been quite able to do."

Hello, searcher-- and welcome to English Forums.

First, do not use the greeting 'Dears' to any person except your wife, girlfriend or child.

While a browser is how users interact with most of Google’s products, making the underlying operating system somewhat irrelevant, Chrome nevertheless needs an OS to operate = People use a browser to access Google, so their choice of OS is not important, but Chrome needs some kind of OS.
